Two Commission Implementing Regulations relating to the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) have been published in the OJEU. The Regulations cover:

  • the procedures for alternative investment fund managers (AIFM) who choose to opt into regulation under it; and
  • how to determine the Member State of reference of a non-EU AIFM.

Both Regulations apply from 22 July, when the implementing measures for the AIFMD must take effect. (Source: AIFMD Regulation on Opt-in and AIFMD Regulation on Member State of Reference)
